Rambus Demonstrates Industry-first PCIe 5.0 Digital Controller IP for FPGAs
– Achieves industry-first demonstration of 32 GT/s PCIe 5.0 Digital Controller IP operation on leading FPGA platforms
– Expands use models for FPGAs by enabling multi-instance, PCIe 5.0 switching and bridging at 32 GT/s speeds
– Enhances performance and capabilities of FPGAs for use in emulation and prototyping, test and measurement, aerospace and defense, and storage and networking applications

Rambus Inc., a premier chip and silicon IP provider making data faster and safer, announced that Rambus has demonstrated its PCI Express (PCIe) 5.0 digital controller IP on leading FPGA platforms. PCIe 5.0 performance at 32 GT/s in FPGAs using a soft controller is an industry first, and another demonstration of technical leadership from Rambus. This capability expands the use models of FPGAs by enabling multi-instance, switching and bridging applications and accelerates the performance of FPGAs used in defense, networking, and test and measurement markets.

“We’ve achieved a new industry benchmark with the demonstration our PCIe 5.0 controller operating at 32 GT/s on popular FPGA platforms,” said Scott Houghton, general manager of Interface IP at Rambus. “With the growing importance of FPGAs in markets from defense to the data center, this solution developed by the newly-acquired PLDA team expands the Rambus portfolio and offers the next level of performance for mission-critical applications.”
